True injuries always come to light once a season is over, and Dave Tippett talked after Game 6 about how injured captain Brenden Morrow and defenseman Mattias Norstrom were. Brenden Morrow was "basically playing on one leg" since Game 6 against San Jose in the last series. He also has a partial tear in his shoulder.
"He hasn't been the same since the last San Jose game," Tippett said.
Norstrom, meanwhile, was playing with a sports hernia through the entire postseason. Yes, that's the same injury that sidelined Sergei Zubov and Jere Lehtinen this season. "It's phenomenal he can get through that," Tippett said.
